Alaska Blog Series - Why Cruise Alaska?




The beauty that is Alaska is breathtaking and no amount of words can describe it accurately.  It is something you need to experience and see in person. When they say it is the last frontier, that statement couldn’t be truer.





I’ve sailed to Alaska three times over many years and I still want to go back again. There is always something else that I want to see or do that I didn’t get to on my last trip. On two of those sailings, I went in the beginning of June and both were different in what we saw and experienced. On one, the warmer weather had just moved in, so waterfalls were abundant in every port of call.


 You may wonder if bringing children on this cruise is worthwhile. I can say without a shadow of a doubt it is.There are many educational opportunities that children won’t even realize because they’re having such fun and enjoying the majesty of the mountains, sites and wildlife. It’s an education not sitting behind a desk in a room, but outside experiencing it first-hand.

Some cruise lines will have experts they may bring on board for the day or guest lecturers that sail with you doing a serious of lectures. Our sailing on Celebrity Cruise Line had a guest lecturer who did a series on the different wildlife you’d see on your trip.  He was incredible and had interesting stories of his trips over the years working for National Geographic.

I also want to note that when I was taking photos at sundown when there was no sun; those photos would come out with a blue hue.  They are unusual, almost looking like a fake photo, but they are unique.
If you haven’t been to Alaska, I would recommend planning a trip there, you’ll be glad you did.

Exciting Disney World Activities Outside of the Parks

Have you ever wondered what there is to do around The Walt Disney World Resort beside visit the Theme Parks or shop at Disney Springs? There are so many great recreational activities right on property. If your family is ready to step outside the parks and see what other fun excursions are offered, check out this list of ideas: Golf Tee off at one of Disney’s three award winning, Arnold Palmer designed, 18-hole courses - Disney’s Lake Buena Vista, Disney’s Magnolia, or Disney’s Palm Golf Course.

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could
